Aloha! The lava flows are still active and is slowly advancing toward the ocean. Our tour could safely view many different surface flows. Flows could be seen cascading down the hillside. Rivers of lava at the western part of Royal Gardens was very active. We could see a flow front to the eastern part of Royal Gardens also.strong glow could be seen above the Pali and intensify through the night. The flow front was steadily advancing to the east and the flow was very wide. Our group stayed out longer then normal cause of the lava activity.. Overall activity was high. Walking distance is shorting by the day because of advancement to the east. Until next time, Aloha!
